MASQUEERADE is a same sex-attracted, gender diverse, intersex prom for young people in far north Queensland (FNQ). This is the first event of its kind in FNQ and the organisers hope that it will be the first of many similar events and will attract diverse young people from around the region.
The preparations are ramping up and it’s going to be amazing! The event is being organised by YETI (Youth Empowered Towards Independence) with a core group of young LGBTIQ+ people, members of the local LGBTIQ+ community and other local social services in Cairns.
The hope is that the event will provide a safe, friendly and inclusive space for young people who identify as same sex-attracted, gender diverse or intersex from around the region to connect and share in a special event that celebrates diversity and is an alternative to the more traditional, high school formal.
